Peter Mac has shared a strong and longstanding affiliation with The University of Melbourne, which was strengthened in 2012 when the Sir Peter MacCallum Department of Oncology was established as a department of the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences.

The Sir Peter Mac department can directly enrol graduate research students to The University of Melbourne's Doctor of Philosophy and Master of Philosophy research higher degree programs.

The University of Melbourne Doctor of Medical Science, Master of Medicine and Master of Surgery students who undertake projects at Peter Mac and who are enrolled through other departments are also fully supported by Peter Mac's education program.

Entry to the Honours program is based on available projects, suitability and academic background.

Honours students are enrolled at The University of Melbourne through the departments of the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences.
